I wish Geelong would unwittingly employ you as you end up a mole for us. lol. Menegola is probably one of their top 10 players and Rohan is lucky to be best 22 here. Wouldn't expect much more than a 4th rounder.
I was thinking they might go after Wylie Buzza. Having another ruck around, especially after this season, might not be a bad idea.

Cant blame him. Having a newborn and being away every second week for a lot of the year would be tough for a new family with no relatives around. Especially tough when you consider the death of the twin.
Even tougher is Gaz and Aimee probably knew how this was going to turn out for a month or longer before the delivery. I cannot even imagine the emotional burden they were carrying through that. Makes understanding why they want to be closer to family easier. But I will miss him.

I'm pretty sure it was quite a few months before, as he posted an incredibly mature and heart-warming message on instagram about the mixed emotions they were going through. It was particularly real for me as my wife was pregnant with our first child and due to give birth at a very similar time. They are good people and I wish them all the best.

you cant be serious. have you ever seen him play?

and he is not a ruckman.
I said might. I live in the states, so no, I haven't seen him play but once or twice on TV here. But OK, I will take your word for it.

So who do you think Geelong might have that we can get for Rohan?

Yeah, the technology that allowed the doctors to detect that is amazing. And I am sure they had some emotional support going on because of it, but I can't imagine the strain.

I hope your wife and child are doing well, and took a highlight mark the moment it popped out.

She's doing great, but not the Swans fan I want her to be yet. In her short 4-month life she's already been to a couple of games and watched some on TV ... but literally slept through the entire game every time. Come on, Florence, up your game.

I guess the first question about him would be how well is his knee holding up. I haven't seen much footage on him.

But I don't think we will get a player for player trade this time. A deal such as the one that brought in Sinclair for Jetta is rare. I think it more likely we will end up getting a draft pick for Rohan that might later be dealt to bring in an experienced players from any of the 17 other clubs. After the NEAFL grand final, we will know who all gets delisted and who else wants to be traded. With Tippett retired, that frees up a large amount of salary cap space and we might see more than one big name players offered deals to become Swans. Next months trade nights just might get interesting.

4 month olds tend to do that. Enjoy letting her sleep in your arms, you will be missing that part. Don't let her listen to Taylor Swift, I am trying to cure my niece of that. :poo:

Don't take it personally, our gameplan puts everyone to sleep!

At least you are getting her started early following the sport.

Compare Gunston as a third tall.-mid sized forward to Rohan. Clearly no contest.
I actually dont think that is the right comparison. Gunston is a marking forward in a team which honours leads. We are a kick to location team. He plays more like a puopolo in our team - which its fair to say he is not as good pressure wise

I'm not quite sure whether that is the right comparison either but it is closer to the mark than an out and out third leading tall (which by the way he has played more like the leading tall this year as roughhead has dropped off)

Look at number 7 on this list. The next week in the GF he started at CHF, had a poor game, and has barely been in the backline since.

If he stays with us, surely playing him off the backline must be tried again. Would enable us to have pace while using Jones and Mills in the midfield.
